You'll never know, how happy I am to write this review on Tinsley's new CD. Tinsley, has until now, in my opinion, been a juke joint, club level, blues southern rock performer. But his performance on this CD, is first class, and in my eyes, Tinsley has now moved to center stage! As "Shaq's, The King Of The World Blues Reviewer's" loyal fans, know, I have described Stevie Ray Vaughan and Albert Kings, unique string play, as "bending the strings", and I have called Buddy Guy's "snapping the strings". Well, Tinsley's string work on this CD, is so powerful, that on some songs, it sounds like he's got rocket engines attached to his guitar! I am officially christening, Tinsley's string sound as: "HEAVY STRING BLUES REVERBERATION!" A number of months ago, I was complimented by a Boston reviewer, because I didn't just give away 5 star ratings, like they were going out of style. So believe me, this is a 5 star rating. As Shaq always says: "You can't get the blues in 3-4 minutes!" This CD is loaded with two 6 minute plus songs, four 5 minute plus songs, and three 4 minute plus songs. Another area that gives me additional pleasure, is when an artist performs songs that he has written himself. It just gives the song a little more feeling and meaning to me. Tinsley has written 10 of the 12 songs on this masterpiece. Total running time 59 minutes. (NOTE TO AMAZON: I think it would be a valuable addition to your listings if you listed the lengths of the songs and CD.) In summary: I recommend this highly, and I hope for Tinsley's benefit, and mine, and all his new fans, that this CD is going to create, that he keeps releasing many more CD's of this quality, in the very near future. Welcome to center stage Tinsley!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Blues Rock in Years! November 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've heard T.E. before years ago and dismissed him as just pretty good. Good song writer, good vocalist, OK guitarist compared to other greats of the genre. This product BLEW ME AWAY! If it's heresy to say "even better than SRV", than so be it. Just when you think its all been done before... It is just a modern masterpiece of Rockin' Blues. The best since Gary Moore's, "Still Got the Blues". Just fantastic! I'm now a huge fan and will be looking for a live appearance in Denver in '08. He just absolutely nails it through and through. Gives me the willies to listen to it and that's saying something since I'm highly critical. If I was right about Tinsley Ellis before he's gotten very, very good at his craft. Ain't got nothin on Bonnamassa who's gotten too flashy.

I went by Rick "Shaq" Goldstein on this as he's usually right about blues rock music. AND HE WAS ON THIS! Trust me and Shaq folks. Get this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smokin!!!!! August 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Having never listened to Tinsley Ellis (I must be living under a rock) before, I was blown away. He has an awesome sound that reminds me of Stevie Ray Vaughn. Great vocals and guitar. Can't wait to buy more of his music.

4.0 out of 5 stars one of the blues greats! October 17, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I'm an Atlanta native, so I'm biased, but Tinsley is truely one of the best blues players around. He's been on the road for 30 years now and is well seasoned. He can play any style of blues and has a seasoned voice to go with it. I'm always impressed with his efforts and his style of guitar playing, which can be varied. I have seen him many times in concert and that is always the best! He is a consumate musician and it shows in his live performances. My opinion is that this effort is a little more on the traditional side, I prefer his more modern take on electric blues. But nevertheless, pure Tinsley! He can be hard to find in a mass merchant music store, so, I really wish people would take more notice of him and give him what he deserves and that is a warm welcome into the spotlight of public adoration. I'm a faithful follower and have all of his recordings. More blues fans, and music fans in general, need to pick up on this phenomenal artist. He is a great song writer, but his real strength is his outstanding playing abilities!!!! LISTEN UP!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tell the truth? I'm a believer June 28, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I recently picked up this latest offering from Tinsley Ellis from the library and liked it so much I had to order a copy for myself.

Like "Shaq" Goldstein,I had heard Tinsley in the past but he for some reason didn't knock me out. That's changed with "Moment of Truth" and I need to re-check other cd's by him.

I like every song on here especially "You're Gonna Thank Me". A truly moving song. There is also a variety of moods on this CD from the rockin' "Somebody" to the very mean "Sleep On It".

If this CD was a guitar in Guitar Player magazine it would get a "Pick Award". Here at Amazon it totally deserves 5 Stars.
